Gite | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Within the “Golden Triangle” of Montfort, Beynac and Sarlat, 5 km south of Sarlat and near the 12th century village of Vitrac, we have an ideally located property of exceptional beauty. The property consists of a group of carefully restored Périgordine buildings surrounded by three hectares (7 acres) of park and private forest.
A prized south of Sarlat location, just a few hundred meters from the Dordogne river, yet within five minutes by car (even in July and August) from the medieval charm of Sarlat, the capital of Perigord Noir, its excellent restaurants, shops, markets and festivals. Both quiet and peaceful but close to everything and not isolated.
Our three charming cottages, Le Pommier, Le Rosier and Le Bois, are perfect for your self catering holiday rental while you explore the beautiful Dordogne valley. Located in a vast and imposing original stone building and its out-buildings, very comfortable and full of character, each has a large private garden, barbecue and access to a heated pool. Our own family lives in the maison de maître just to the side and we are here to provide a warm welcome, help and assistance to our guests.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
We are situated in the centre of the most beautiful and historic part of the Dordogne region of France. Landscape of unforgettable beauty, dotted with hundreds of castles, rock-sculpted villages, ancient stone farm houses and caves decorated with fifteen thousand year-old pre-historic art.
Friendly and welcoming to man for more than twenty thousand years, the region is considered by the French as the source of life. Today it is also well known for great local cuisine and warm, salt-of-the earth people.
The "must see" villages of Beynac, Castelnaud, Domme and La Roque-Gageac are between four and ten kilometers to the west of us.
To the east lies Château de Fenelon (12 km/8 miles), undoubtedly one of the most beautiful châteaux in Périgord. Classified as a Historical Monument it combines the defensive features of the Middle Ages with Renaissance elegance.
To the north are the world famous Lascaux (31 km/19 miles), caves and many prehistoric sites and museums in or around Les Eyzies (23 km/15 miles), including Font-de-Gaume, one of the last caves in Europe with prehistoric paintings still open to the public.
Vitrac Port, Cénac and Carsac, the popular starting points for canoeing the most scenic stretch of the Dordgone river are respectively one, three and five kilometers away.
